FLYING THE BIRMINGHAM ROLLER by David Gehrke, 2007, signed dedication by author,. soft cover, 236 pages, b/w photos & illustrations, 9 by 6 inches, Birmingham Rollers are a very unique performance breed. What they do in the air is far different from performance of other breeds of pigeons. The breeds unique ability and the unanswered questions as to why they spin probably explains why so few books have been written on Birmingham Rollers despite the number of roller enthusiast. Written by Dave Gehrke who acquired his fi rst Rollers in 1971. Dave and his wife Rita are also editors of the publication "The Roller Journal".
